permissions for /tmp (was Permission denied when using CVS remotely)

I'm reposting this, hopefully a bit clearer this time, in the hope that
somebody will help me out.

I'm running CVS 1.11.1p1 on a Linux box called parapet, and try to access it
remotely (from NT using cygwins cvs 1.11, or from a Sun with cvs 1.10.7).
The checkout goes fine, but after that I get:

$ cvs -t update
cvs update: notice: main loop with CVSROOT=parapet:/usr/local/cvsroot
 -> Starting server: rsh parapetcvs server
cannot create_adm_p /tmp/cvs-serv24426/PPhead
Permission denied

So, I have a problem with accessing /tmp on my Linux server. But what should
I do about it? As far as I can see, all permissions are ok. The lines below
hope to illustrate this.

On my Linux server parapet, I get the following for ls -l /

drwxrwxrwt   10 root     root         4096 Jun  4 13:11 tmp/

(where apparently the t means 'sticky bit' saying that non-owners can't
delete  a file in that directory).

On my 'client' NT machine, I can do:

$ rsh parapet mkdir /tmp/testdir
$ rsh parapet touch /tmp/bla

This indeed creates the relevant file and directory, with correct user and
group settings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
